smbmount file permissions

Hi guys,

I'm using smbmount to mount a Windows NT partition (from our network server) on a Linux box and using it to transfer data. This all works beautifully, however users on the NT network can not delete these files, which they need to be able to do. All users have permission to delete files on the NT partition, so how do I fix the Linux side??

Got it!
Seems all the files in the share had to be deleted before the user permissions took effect, even on new files. Doesn't make any sense to me but its working now
